Netherlands based Moonen Yachts has sold its 36.3-metre superyacht YN199, built on the Martinique platform. The yacht will be launched at the end of this summer and then delivered to its new owner in the Middle East a couple of weeks later.
YN199 features an exterior design by Dutch designer René van der Velden, the naval architecture was executed by Diana Yacht Design and the interior design and styling by London based designers, Studio Indigo.
The new yacht is a sister ship to the M/Y Brigadoon, delivered in 2018, and is based on the same Martinique platform. A second such yacht YN200 is also under construction for delivery in August 2021 respectively.
YN199 measures a length of 36.3 metres (119 ft), with a maximum beam of 8 metres, a maximum draught of 2.1 metres and 337 Gross Tonnage. Regarding its performance, it is powered by twin CAT C32 engines, which provide it with a top speed of 16.5 knots and a comfortable cruising speed of 14.5 knots. Reflecting Moonen’s philosophy of building go-anywhere-yachts, YN199 has a range of 4000 nm at a cruising speed of 10 knots.
‘I have always wanted a Moonen, but it was unclear when,’ says the owner. ‘It’s in fact a smaller size yacht, but can easily compare with the largest superyachts in the world quality and style wise. I absolutely adore the winter garden and love the spacious lay-out of the sundeck. This yacht gives me and my family so much room for relaxing and enjoying the water.’
